PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Penguins will sponsor their 16th annual “Score Against Hunger” food drive on Thursday, November 6 when the Penguins meet the Edmonton Oilers at Mellon Arena at 7:00 pm.
Every fan who brings a non-perishable food item to the game, or makes a cash donation that evening, will be eligible to win autographed Penguins’ memorabilia.
All food and money collected will be donated to the Greater Pittsburgh Community Food Bank for distribution to needy people in the Pittsburgh area. Fans are encouraged to participate in the food drive since the need to assist hungry people in the area has increased tremendously in the past year.
Food and donations will be collected at Mellon Arena Gates 1, 3 and 10 from 6:00 pm through the first 10 minutes of the first period.
Penguins’ “Score Against Hunger” food drives have collected over 22,500 pounds of food and $18,200 in donations since 1992.
